and politics. marco rubio has been designated as the republican respondent, right, because it's smart because he's the hot hand. immigration jumps right out at him. he's cuban american and talked to the issue. will the president stick it to him and say i'm going to be good on immigration, you'll have to handle the issue. >> i think he's going to make immigration one of the issues he talks about in the state of the union. the state of the union is good but here are the things we need to do. he'll talk about immigration reform, he'll talk about climate change. he's going to certainly talk about bringing the troops home from the war. i think he'll announce the number of troops that will be withdrawn. but the marco rubio question gets to whether obama can get out of the zero sum game in washington. where to do something good on immigration reform, he's got to, you know, destroy marco rubio who is the republican symbol of progress on that. and i'm looking to see whether he can lift his game beyond where he was in his inaugural address and really speak to the people who didn't vote for him as well

basis in the senate. senator mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, joining chuck schumer, bob menendez, and myself in a group trying to come up with a bipartisan solution. but it won't just apply to children. eric cantor's speech to the american enterprise institute, he quoted emma lazarus, and that great quotation found on the statue of liberty. it doesn't say i lift my lamp beside the golden door for children only. we have 11 million people in this country who need a pathway to citizenship. i hope that the republicans in the house and mr. cantor will embrace that as part of immigration reform. >> just to pin you down on that point, what i heard from him today was, look, we can get something along the lines of the dream act passed right away. and we may have to come back to this business of a pathway to citizenship for everybody else. but you think there's momentum in the senate side to deal with everybody and deal with this pathway without illegal immigrants having to first go home? >> let me tell you this, david. the dream act means more to me than i can express. i met these young p

to be over obama at all. it was not just boehner but how much rubio's speech, forget about the water, how much rubio's speech sounded like an election year speech. chris: the country may be all afraid but republican office holders seem to be down the line from cornyn, all of them, to the right wing threat. unless you're particularly nasty to the president, they're afraid you're his friend. charlie crist and gene shsubmit. smile or hug the guy, dare touch him, will he kill you. >> that's why he went so light on the immigration speech. he knows to get a bill, he can't be too close to it. >> in the reality if you look at the house, 15 house g.o.p. members that are sit-in districts obama won. 15 tout of 234 so there isn't a lot of incentive for republicans to cooperate. chris: the mood of the country, figure the reason we have social hostility in a lot of the country, people are afraid. who am i afraid of? they get angry at that person. anger comes from fear. is that what's going on? what are right wing people if you vote right wing, without cast ago spergses, what are they afraid of, demogra

: that drew sharp criticism from republican senator marco rubio, a key figure in the bipartisan group working on immigration reform. in a statement, he said, "if actually proposed, the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come." >> well, let's make sure that it doesn't have to be proposed. >> reporter: today, white house chief of staff dennis mcdonough dodged the report, insisting the president has not put a bill forward yet, hoping that congress will act first. >> we will be prepared in the event that the bipartisan talks going on the hill, which, by the way, we're very aggressively supporting, if those do not work out, then we will have an option that will be ready to put out there. >> reporter: but republicans suggested the white house was playing politics. >> leaking this out does set things in the wrong direction. >> this raises the question that many of us continue to wonder about. does the president really want a result or does he want another cudgel to beat up republicans? >> reporte
